Belt Buckle Faux? Zuni? Navajo?

Any opinions on authenticity?
Is the figure a Kachina?

It could be a kachina. The first one that comes to mind is the Early Morning Singer.

Oooh yes! I think that’s it! Thank You :blush:

It is a Navajo piece, they do not have kachinas. It is a Yei’ be Chei’ figure and the artist is Benjamin Becenti. He is well known for inlay storyteller concho belts.

Interesting find, we have a Rainbow Man, Apache Crown Dancer and Thunderbird. I guess we could interpret that as a Kachina. Thanks for sharing.
